Default When verticality goes horizontal

On scale from 1 to 10 (1 being Melo under the basket, 10 KD's rip through), how would you rate the current most BS trend in the NBA?






Aka how to become a DPOY by getting your BS fouls hyped up by Vogel and Reggie Miller

Bonus question: Have you ever seen Hibbert go truly straight up?

Lebron stans are so ****ing retarded. Verticality is jumping up you dumb fack, it has nothing to do with the arms.

wtf are you trying to say? Hibbert can't attempt to block the ball while jumping?

can you keep your arms straight up after being hit in the stomach\chest?

It's hilarious this retard posts a pic of battier going knee up towards Hibbert and whines about Hibbert verticality.

Bitch Lebron is already whining because he is already scared. No surprise talking about a guy that benched himself in the finals with cramps in his vag after airballing.



Lebron stans are little whinny bitches just like Lebron

Hibbert didn't even get a foul until mid-way through the 4th yesterday; that is pretty absurd tbh.

Certain defenders get the benefit of the doubt like certain offensive players get the benefit of the doubt on calls. When it came to perimeter calls, Bruce Bowen sometimes could hold and snake bite (small light taps that add up over time) and not get called for it. Some "physical" shot blocking forwards and centers hit the offensive players' hands on their shots and due to their "shot blocking status," could get away with those calls. Sadly, that's just how it goes.

If Hibbert has his specialty, he can loom over defenders like a tree, still be considered "vertical" and any contact would probably go against the offensive player over himself. To be honest, he's done this move forever and used to be very foul prone at times. He's a much better player now and he gets more respect (more calls his way).

if you jump straight up, but bring your arms down on the offensive player, and dont get all ball, thats a foul

and thats the case every level of basketball

Pretty sure if you bring your arms down on the offensive player in ANY situation is a foul, what does have to do with jumping straight up? He can't bring his arms down and block or try to block the ball because he is jumping straight up?


Miami Cheat won a championship because Bosh blatantly brought his arms on Durant arm when was taking a shot in the finals seconds, and he wasn't even jumping straight and no foul was called, among many other bad calls.

These gifs just illustrate how soft the NBA has become these days. Whatever happened to posterizing a damn 7 footer who dared to get in your way? Soft ass layups Lebron is supposed to be some athletic phenom and that dude can't dunk on anyone. It's a shame.

LeBron on Roy: "He takes a lot of teams out of their games... They allow him to use his verticality more than any other player in league"



Spitting the truth. And at that idiot saying you can bring your arms down. You can tell who's played basketball here.

You clearly don't know the rule. The defensor jumps straight up but he can block the shot with his hands if he doesn't touch the atacker with the arms.

And lol at the Battier's off foul that you posted to make your case
